From Zad for Ever

After the long awaited victory against the airport project, we are trying to lift ourselves out of the brutal spring, a season marked by two phases of evictions in which the government made sure to avenge the affront that the zad had represented for so many years. The massive police operations caused many injuries, the destruction of a part of the living spaces of the zad and a long military presence. But the state was forced to give up going any further and entirely eradicating our presence in this bocage. Resistance on the ground, solidarity elsewhere and the negotiation process resulted in a status quo that maintained of dozens of homes, common spaces and activities on most of the land held by the movement.

Note: Here I will not completely explain the concept of "leftism" as Ted Kaczynski uses it. Readers of this essay should instead refer to "Industrial Society and Its Future" (especially paragraphs 6-32, 83, 213-232) and "Izquierdismo" by Último Reducto. These pieces should provide the requisite knowledge for following this critique.

Land And Liberty

From anarchist communist group

This article is based on a talk given by the London group of the ACG at the Radical Bookfair on June 2, 2018.

The slogan ‘Land and Liberty’ has long been an anarchist slogan. It was the name of the Russian revolutionary organisation ‘Zemlya i Volya’ in 1878 and was used by the peasants in the Russian Revolution. When women marched in St Petersburg on the 8th of March, 1917, helping to kick off the revolution, the slogan was Bread, Land and Peace. ‘Tierra y Libertad’ was prominent in the Mexican and Spanish Revolutions and is still used today as the name of the Iberian Anarchist Federation paper.

A Critique of the Nomadic Hunter / Gatherer Ideal

Contradictions in the Reasoning

Ted Kaczynski (TK) suggests a nomadic hunter/gatherer (NHG) ideal, because, he claims, a movement needs a positive ideal as much as it needs an enemy. On the other hand, he says that it would be impossible to control post-collapse conditions and in fact imagines that agriculture will inevitably arise where the soil and climate are suitable for it. “No ideology,” he writes, “will persuade people to starve when they can feed themselves by planting crops.” He also repeatedly states that revolutions have only ever succeeded at destroying or conquering their target society, never implementing their ideal society (see ISAIF, paragraph 182). Therefore, the object of anti-industrial revolutionaries should only be “the elimination of modern technology.” Otherwise, they might be tempted to use the techno-industrial system to implement their ideal, and, if history is any indication, they will fail.

CgAn Operation termination Declaration

Almost 8 years ago, CgAn was created today we end this project. The cyber guerrilla in the form of the CgAn is now history. We are all those who have been organized until recently in CgAn. We take this step together. From now on we are, like all others from this context, former militants of CgAn. We stand by our story. CgAn was the revolutionary attempt of a minority, contrary to the tendency of this society, to contribute to the transformation of capitalist conditions. We are glad to have been part of this experiment.

From It's Going Down

It’s Going Down was lucky enough to talk with hip-hop artist Sole on the Solecast podcast. The interview focuses on building mass self-defense, expanding land defense struggles, building autonomous resilience projects, bringing in new people, and addressing major contradictions within society that the State refuses to.
